Richie Havens: Rise in Eternal Glory!

Hail Mi Irieites -

As you know by now, Richie Havens passed away yesterday on Earth Day.

I had the good fortune to see him live for the first time at a club in Birmingham called Barbarellas. I must have been about 19 years old at the time.

Years later, Steel Pulse went on to be on an opening billing with him in D.C., in the early 80s. To this day I have yet to see anyone strum the acoustic guitar with the energy he had. Richie, you will never be forgotten!!
